Mr President, I ask a further supplementary question. Will the government provide bipartisan support for Sweden to join Japan, Germany and France in the procurement process so that the most capable submarine designers are all competing for the work, or is the government still committed to excluding this experienced builder so that the Prime Minister can deliver his captain's pick to Japan? It is your government that promised to build 12 submarines in Adelaide before the last election. (Time expired)
